hemmed in

The December sun is barely up in the sky before it begins to set.
Mid-winter days are hemmed in by darkness.
We walked this afternoon as the light slanted ever lower in the sky,
as pearl gray clouds became drenched in color.
The wind blew great rolling billows of pink and orange above the trees and we watched the color drain from them,
gone with the retreating sun.
